“First time visit and won't be the last”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

I have been driving by this restaurant many times over the years and finally decided to have dinner here with friends last night. I have to say, it was a great experience. Everyone was terrific, from the bartenders as well as the entire staff. They had a special menu for September which included an apetizer, entree, dessert and coffee. You can also order off the main menu but the specials were very tempting. Everything was excellent. I can't wait to go again!!!

“Excellent experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Great food and service. Manager checked on us to make sure everything was fine with our meal. Nice atmosphere and not very crowded for a Saturday night at the Jersey shore. Hamburgers are very tasty and cook to perfection. Reasonably price. I will return to try other dishes.

“Worth the Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Forte Restaurant is located two or three miles inland from Point Pleasant Beach. The dining experience is definitely worth the short drive. My wife and I enjoyed diner on a Thursday evening. We arrived early before the restaurant began to fill, so the host, the owner, seated my wife and I at one of the restaurant's best tables located near large windows. The waiters were experienced, not college students working a summer job, an unpleasant circumstance that sometimes mars dining at restaurants in resort towns.. Forte had a printed daily dinner special including about five entrees, a salad, several appetizers, and perhaps a desert. My wife and I shared a salad and both ordered Halibut. In our opinion, the Halibut was cooked perfectly. The tables were comfortably spaced. The restaurant's overall atmosphere was relaxed and professional. We considered the price moderate.

“Hidden gem just a short ride from the beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Have been dining here since it opened and have never been disappointed. John, the owner, treats everyone like an old friend and as though you are dining at his home. The food is excellent with many choices on the menu to please everyone. Had shrimp florentine last night and it was excellent. Many great flavors on the shrimp, and nicely accompanied by fresh (not frozen) vegetables and roasted potatoes that were all cooked perfectly. I'll never understand why people wait hours to eat in sub-par boardwalk restaurants when they can drive a couple of miles to Forte and enjoy a fabulous meal in a great atmosphere. Oh, and Maureen will make you a great martini at the bar before you sit down for dinner. Great experience--will continue to spend Friday nights with John and his fabulous staff at Forte!
